Experienced soccer player and coach in various NYC and Long Island leagues -- from youth to professional level. Captained undefeated PSAL champions at Bowne HS, and Co-Captained Hunter CUNY Varsity. Unique coaching experience resulted in training with FIFA International Master Coach Dettmar Cramer (who was a US National Team, and 2-time European Cup Champion Bayern Munich Coach); attained USSF C License in 1974; served as New Jersey State Youth Coach; and was lead instructor and administrator of Pro Prep Soccer Camp for three years.

Studied and well-versed in Germany, England and Dutch Total Soccer systems, as well as having studied, played and lived in Brazil. An Education major in college, my greatest passion is helping groups, teams, and individual beginner to advanced youngsters, adolescent men and ladies, and HS/Collegians maximize on their potential as players, good sportsmen & citizens, and in their academic pursuits. I am also an accomplished business coach, soccer and general business writer, and consultant (see LinkedIn Executive Profile), and I live in New York with my wife and daughter.

I am a seasoned soccer coach and successful business executive with a unique soccer coaching background -- steeped in teambuilding plus individual, measurable, skill-pinpointed, custom coaching techniques that is unparalleled in the sport. My training with Master Coach Dettmar Cramer, coupled with my USSF License and extensive successful playing and coaching experience -- coupled with my love for the game and for seeing players of all levels demonstrably improve, plus my meticulous preparation, maximum patience, and philosophy of never losing sight that soccer is a beautiful game to be enjoyed to the max by all players and students of the game, provides a good foundation for an optimal and enjoyable training and development experience for the players.

I guarantee maximum, measurable, skills development improvement as a result of my unique, customized training for all levels of players. I will provide -- using methods that are easy to understand and assimilate -- the tools, tips and skills that will accelerate the development right up through the youth ranks, HS and College (including scholarship prep and marketing assistance) ... and for those that dare to dream, right on to the pro and Olympic levels.
